    They exist. If you don't want to spend a ton it's possible, but they won't be from the top of the list though.

    If you do want some 'better' ones, it's also possible, but since they're not as common, they are not as cheap.

    E-Bay's got 'em.
    Jenson's got 'em

    Or go the Thumbie route and never have to buy another set of shifters again.

    Or just contact your LBS and have 'em order some. Should be able to pick up some SRAM alternatives too. (X-7 or Attack/Rocket)

    And if it's just the housing that cracked.. have them check QBP's catalog and see if there are any small parts that can be bought instead of buying an entire new shifter.

    Good luck,
